2008 - Lots of clinicals:
My new little Honda Metro Chad from "Blue Hawaii": love love love it!
Everyday is like a vacation when I'm riding my scooter:) It gets 88 mpg.
My next-door neighbor, Martin, fixed/rebuilt my back fences! They look fantastic
I finally have gates that actually close and stay closed. Yay.
My Mom and Dad celebrated their 50th anniversary June 21st, 2008!
They had a fabulous party in Connecticut, so I flew home for the weekend and got to see lots of family.
Last Fall, my seminar group got a standing ovation for a silly song I wrote called "Ode to E. coli".
Here is a video recorded on my Palm Treo (so not the greatest quality), but you get the point...
Here is the You tube link:
Ode to E. coli
My name is E. coli, I never get scared
But I get kinda shaky when I look at Suzanne Baird
I know she is a danger, She told me its her dream
To catch me and my buddies in a strong aseptic stream
Im E - E. coli is my name
Im just a normal flora
But I can cause you pain
If you think your life is hard, just come with me and spend one day
in a moist and murky place, Judy wont even say.
I have to swim around, dont have any legs
And the drug they send to kill me lord it smells like rotten eggs
If dont wash your hands, or you dont wipe when you pee
To me and all my friends that just spells opportunity
Well march up your urethra, make your bladder our new home
And were gonna start a fire every time you have to go..
Does this song relate back to Foundations?,
Thats what Betsy wants to hear
Well Even Florence Nightingale .
Liked her urine to be clear
From me - E. coli is my name Im just a normal flora
And I dont really wanna
But Im gonna cause you pain.
Back to School, 2007:
I am entering a 24 month accelerated

Ah the good old days -I miss microbilogy
Remember to Reach beyond the sky!
